What is Krishna consciousness? by Puranjan dasa

    I was just having a wonderful conversation with a godbrother, an early disciple of Srila Prabhupada who was glorfying some of our godbrothers and godsisters as "saviours of ISKCON". He stated :

    "I admire those devbotees who have saved ISKCON from utter destruction, that rose from the rank and file by virtue of their tapasya and devotion and became empowered. Bhakti Vikas, Indradyumna Hari Sauri, Drutakarma, Sadaputa, Suhotra, Ekanatha, Vaisesika, Mahatma, Siddhavidya, Sri Prahlada...Those are the saviours of ISKCON. Those in leadership roles, acting like elitists, on the contrary, are the cause of the destruction of ISKCON."

    After hearing this, I personally concluded that a "saviour of ISKCON" is one that can serve closely with their rank and file godbrothers, who don't have a personal agenda to fulfill, and who don't try to micro manage, or try to take over by displacing their godbrothers and godsisters with their own disciples.

    Off the top of my head, I brought up a few other names, like Danavir Maharaja, Goura Govinda Maharaja, Burijana prabhu, Janmastami prabhu, Kadamba Kanana Swami, Ambarisa Das , Urmila Edith Best prabhu, and Mulaprakriti prabhu that I am including. Because I have not mentioned so many, it does not mean they are not worthy of the title

    There are many other humble, unsung heros and heroines that could be included as a "saviour of ISKCON" for maintaining a loving relationship with Srila Prabhupada's disciples, and their spirit of facilitating other's devotional service, without looking for personal name, fame, profit , adoration, or distinction.

    Anyone who reads this and is dedicated to fulfilling Srila Prabhupada's siddhanta and mission is also saving a valuable piece of ISKCON.....themselves !
